It takes a brave spirit to move towards a difficult situation rather than shy away from it. When we encounter someone who is suffering, a difficult but necessary conversation, or a conflict that desperately needs resolution; it is a natural reaction to back away, to politely avoid, or to gloss over the situation in order to minimize the awkwardness or discomfort. It takes a brave spirit to resist these natural tendencies and lean into these challenging situations with gentleness, curiosity and compassion.

May we have the courage and inner strength to go where others don’t want to go in order to bring light, love and healing.

Have a great week, everyone!
